Default If the Moorer fight hadn't happened where would Foreman be rated?

If Foreman hadn't KOed Moorer in a fight that he was losing on points badly (and seemed destined to lose) how would he be rated in history?

I personally think that Foreman is over rated. I'm wondering how much his win over Moorer affects peoples opinion of him.

Moorer never amounted to much after the Foreman fight. Why should this win be considered as a great win?

Moorer wins the title and loses the title in his 1st defence to the oldest guy to ever win the heavyweight title by a long way.

Well, if Floyd Patterson had comeback in 1978 and regained the title from Leon Spinks, wouldn't you push him up a few places?

I don't rate Foreman-Moorer as that BIG a win, Holmes-Mercer was as good really. But Foreman in his prime was a beast, a force of nature, people act like he just had power but it was much more than just power, he was a great athlete, strength of 10 men, he was a natural puncher who could land KO punches from any range (short/medium/long), ramrod of a jab, loads of overwhelming pressure (which would undo a load of slick boxers), great stamina (you can't throw 90 power punches a round without great stamina).
